About this Item

Saint-Julien, 1982
2 (1 x 2) 750ml
This leading Bordeaux Chateau dates back to the 14th century. The estate is located at the southern edge of Pauillac, bordering the St. Julien vineyards of Ch. Léoville Las Cases. It was purchased in 1993 by the French industrialist François Pinault, whose empire was to grow to include Yves St. Laurent, Gucci and Christie’s Auction House. Président, Frédéric Engerer, under whose stewardship a major programme of investment has taken place, has seen Latour rise to an undisputed pre-eminent position in the Bordeaux wine hierarchy.

Critics Ratings

‘This huge wine possesses a great degree of elegance as well as unreal concentration. Classic lead pencil, cassis, kirsch, cedar, and spice characteristics are abundant in both the nose and full-bodied flavors. The tannins are still there, and, at least from my cellar, this 1982 does not appear to have changed much in the last 10-12 years. One wonders how much patience admirers of this brilliant St.-Julien will continue to exhibit. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050.’ - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 95+/100 (Jun 2009)
